I am currently driving an 07 G35 sedan, and looking to move up to M-Ville within 12-15 months. I really love this color, but was just at the bmwusa configurator, and it does not seem like an option. Any input on this>?

Thanks

It's an '08 color. Not available in the '09s, much to my disappointment. I absolutely loved the Sparkling Graphite. But had to order another (went with Jerez Black). They got rid of Graphite and added LeMans Blue (similar to Interlagos Blue, but with blue highlights instead of the purple).

If you are talking about speedcloth as opposed to the leather option, yes, I do. Same color and wheels as in the pix above.

I would have ordered it if Sparkling graphite did not have that blue/red tint to it in certain lighting.

I really like sparkling graphite but I decided on space gray because sparkling graphite hides the carbonroof.
